Anticipation Is Power: Turning potential business problems Into opportunities

The final 2 business triggers to create the ultimate competitive advantage

Business Trigger #6: A change in employees lives

Have any of you business owners ever had a top employee or salesman go through a life stage like the birth of a child, or a divorce, or a certain birthday, and they come into your office and say, “I want some time away,” or, “I want to go to spiritual sojourn,” or, “I just want to play more golf.” Suddenly they’re not as productive (OR they’re not even around) and it takes a real hit on your business.

Or maybe it’s not one of the company’s key players. Maybe you find yourself saying, “It’s not you, it’s me.”

Business Trigger #7: A change in your life stage

Perhaps YOU are the one who went all Eat-Pray-Love, on the company. You hit a threshold and you just had to do something that made you happy. Or maybe there was a period where you burnt out, or you fell in love, or you beat cancer, or got married, or had a baby, or you went through some other event that upended your business. How many of you look at time completely differently today than you did 10 or 15 years ago? This is exactly how a change in your stage of life can trigger massive change in your business. But what I’ve learned is that in so many ways, these are more predictable than you may think.

So do your homework. Review this list of the 7 business triggers once a month. Look at your company and think ahead to what’s coming. What needs to be anticipated? What’s approaching that you must protect yourself from? Even better, what is available for you to disrupt the competition and do more for your clients than anyone else in the game?

Expect change. Analyze the landscape. Take the opportunities. Stop being the chess piece; become the player. It’s your move, my friends.
